So, full disclosure, I have an Honor 9 phone which handles Infinite Flight spectacularly with all settings to high (except anti-aliasing, which I keep off). While flying, I have 2.5 GB RAM free at all times, and I have more than enough storage on the phone.
I’ve done long haul flights before, and my device has always handled them well. However, since Tuesday night, I’ve tried the VIDP - LFPG three times in a Boeing 777-300ER with the same flight plan. Each time, the app kicks me out soon after the 5hr mark. After the first time, I tested the second and third time with all settings turned down to low, but it still didn’t help. Rebooting the device, and uninstalling/reinstalling also didn’t help.
I find this so weird, because it’s definitely not an issue of lack of resources.
The weird thing is first flight I was flying at 0.80M at FL320 and the app crashed around 5hrs43mns in. The second and third time, I was flying at 0.85M at FL320 and the app crashed around 5hrs 10mns both times, give or take a few mins. This indicates to me that the determining factor did not seem to be the time flown, but rather the distance flown, given that all three times I would have approximately covered the same distance (given the slower speed in the first flight).
I’m sure this is a bug somehow, even because the app doesn’t “crash” in the traditional manner, but seemingly closes. It’s quite hard to explain. And as I said, it’s certainly not a resources issue
Does anyone have any idea how I can get around this?
